Bill was born in Indianapolis, Indiana and has been vacationing and living in Michigan for over 20 years, so he has a deep understanding of the Midwest values and culture that are so prevalent here in West Michigan.

Bill graduated from Valparaiso University with a BA in history and earned his law degree from Thomas M. Cooley Law School. Bill has worked for a number of firms where he learned from some of the finest attorneys in West Michigan. Before going into practice with his old college friend and fraternity brother Will Hartwell, Bill clerked for the Law office of Love and Johnson, the Kent County Defenders Office, and Jensen & DeHaan, PC.
